Even after 17 years, there’s nothing more fetch than watching and quoting Mean Girls. The 2004 teen comedy starring Lindsay Lohan, is still considered one of the best films ever made about high school girls. The movie also catapulted the careers of Rachel McAdams and Amanda Seyfried to superstar levels.

The hilarious screenplay was penned by Tina Fey and it reveals real-life themes like bullying, staying true to your friends and accepting people the way they are. While it may give some the wrong idea, at its core, Mean Girls gives a humorous outlook on bullying, while still teaching us valuable life lessons. 

In one of her interviews, Tina Fey admitted that watching teenagers behave in such ways can be hilarious, but at a closer look you realize it’s actually toxic behavior.

There’s nothing wrong with teenage girls wishing for popularity, but it’s important to keep in mind that being popular is not a synonym with being mean to others around you.

Here are 45 Mean Girls quotes that will never get old:
